  1. Thanks very much for the info. I also thought this was the case. I wanted to check if I was misinterpreting the info I was getting. Until COCT adopts a more European way of thinking to buying back electricity in going to stay just a self consumer.
  2. I have a few of these https://www.takealot.com/vizia-smart-universal-ir-remote-wifi-amazon-alexa-google-home/PLID71884508 around the house and they integrate with Google / Alexa for voice and for manual use they have a phone app with timers etc as needed.
  3. Plus: It's a local company, so local is lekker!
  4. I'm running a Sunsynk 8kw, from I have heard the Deye and Sunsynk are closely related.
  5. I can also recommend Solar Assistant, I have been using it for about 6 months and am very happy. You might struggle to find a RaspberryPi currently due to the global shortage unless you have one lying around?
  6. HI all, I'm in the solar journey and have my kit installed and registered with COCT. Very happy so far. My current setup is 8kw Sunsynk Inverter 3x Pylontech US3000c 16x Canadian Solar 420 Poly's Solar-Assistant Monitoring My question is: Has anyone successfully registered with COCT for feeding back into the grid? What was the process like? Upfront costs? Do you make money back or credits? Is it worth it? Do the credits expire monthly or annually? Thanks, Julius
  7. From my very limited googling for the LuxPower Hybrid Inverter, I come up with the cost of R19k as per below https://sp-energy.co.za/product/luxpower-5kw-hybrid-inverter-lxp5k/ While the Sunsynk is at R22k https://www.solarwaysuppliers.co.za/product/sunsynk-5kw-hybrid-inverter/ The difference to me doesn't seem that large (about one solar panel)? Unless you are referring to the LuxPower offgrid inverter? Which comes in at R11k? https://sp-energy.co.za/product/luxpower-5kw-off-grid-inverter/
  8. Only a pleasure. I've got the 8kw version and am very happy, no issues with my system since install. The best thing I like about Sunsynk is that there is loads of training video's on Youtube by the manufacturer of how to use the device.
  9. I know it's not on your list but I would throw in a Sunsynk for you: https://www.ellies.co.za/product/5kw-sunsynk-hybrid-inverter/
  10. Hi @QuentinF, I can provide feedback on the Sunsynk inverters, I have the 8Kw installed at my house and fully registered with COCT. I am very happy with the Sunsynk mainly due to how easy it is to change settings and how much information is available about it on YouTube by the actual company that manufactures it. Let me know if you have any other questions? Regards, Julius
